Activities in Rio – Pool, Capoeira, Learning Portuguese and Rainy Days
So this page about activities in Rio is a collection of information with links to more specific pages. Since we have so much info on this website, we had to find ways to present you with all the content. This page is an attempt to organize it.
Activities in Rio – Capoeira
On our page for Capoeira (just click the link to get there) there is a collection of pages we have written on this topic. Learn about the history, the moves, the music and also where you can practice it in Rio de Janeiro. Even though Capoeira is more culturally connected to Bahia and Salvador, is still quite popular in Rio.
Nowadays, quite a few people come to Rio for a longer stay and many of these people want to learn the language. Click the link Learn Portuguese in Rio and you will get to a small collection of pages we have put together. There, we explain a bit about the language and the best ways to learn it. You can also find links and addresses to schools and good resources. Even though English is spoken, you cannot fully operate in Rio without knowing the native language!
Activities in Rio – Games and Play
So here is where you find activities other than sports – just games for recreation and fun. We have a whole page dedicated to Pool in Rio, it has some history and many addresses. On the Games in Rio page you can find links and addresses to places for darts, bowling and Go-kart.
We’ve put together this page by request. We’ve got many feedback from people wanting some tips on what to do when it is raining. So we decided to create When It Rains in Rio de Janeiro – What to Do?. Over there you will find some of the activities in Rio we have listed on this page, but there is info about cinema, museums and much more as well.
